To my experience Christians have ALWAYS done that. It’s why I left the church, It’s fine for Raymond to steal from the church coffers incessantly! But it’s not for church member Sheila to point this out, or refuse to give offering because FAITH, and it’s GOD’s WORK! And men are not perfect, and only God can judge!
The church is a hiding place (a perfect one!) for lots of bad actors and criminals, from con men to pedaphiles to crooks….the Christian Church is a perfect place for these people and to just engage in whatever crooked craziness they like, and claim that God approves all of it, WHAT A HUSTLE!
And to think so many people are still falling for it.
